Rico Picante – Smoky Chilli Sauce

This sauce from Rico Picante has a great aroma, smoky with the acidic hit of vinegar; its mild flavour is earthy and slightly sweet. It has the perfect table sauce consistency and despite it being mild has a rich flavour which is unique to any other table sauce I have tasted.

Its packaging takes me to Mexico, its subtle font colouring; works well with the labels background and reflects the product inside.

The sauce is a mix of fruity Aji Amarillo and the deep red, mild, berry flavoured Aji Panca Chilli producing a great smoky flavour.

Rico Picante has 5 varieties ranging from mild to extra hot and won the great taste gold 2012 award.

We reviewed their Amarillo sauce back in November and the review can be found here and features more detail on the company in general.

The sauce comes in a 150ml bottle and is priced at £3.50 and is available from various online hot sauce sellers including Chilli Pepper Pete and The Devils Garden


Aji Amarillo 50%, Dried Aji Panca 25%,  Onion, Garlic, Vinegar, Water, Vegetable Oil, Salt, Black Pepper, Sugar and Citric Acid.

Bottle kindly supplied by Rico Picante

Value (7/10)
